I was walking, aimlessly, and considering my livelihood. Recently, I have been more adept at cooking. Well, not in Mexico. For whatever reason, Jonny, always insists on making meals. Like I am inept in the kitchen which is a complete joke. For real. I know how to use knives in addition to boiling water. Not that he is bad...he's not. He just doesn't even consider that perhaps I could make a meal. The other night he made bacon wrapped steak. It was okay. Out of anything, inferior product. Not skill. I did enjoy the black beans. He's made eggs in the past and always does everything. Thankfully, he lets me at least clean up after the meal.
Anyways, I was walking around enjoying the beautiful weather and considering my lifestyle. I realized that there are things that I cannot live without. First off--carrot cake. I texted the Goddess to let her know that I have still not found carrot cake to celebrate my birthday. WTH? I cannot believe that I have went on this long without the delightful carrot cake. Again, remember, this is a want, not a staple in my kitchen.
Nope, I always have onions, garlic and olive oil. These are things that I cannot live without. Well, and of course, wine. I always have wine in my house. That would be sacrilege to not have at least one bottle to offer someone. (or myself after a strenuous day...)
I enjoy tomatoes, avocados, tortillas and salsa. All things that I typically keep stocked. When I was in college, I had nothing outside of wine and coffee. I believe my sisters can all attest to that. I have always worked in restaurants where it is easier to dine there then come home at 2 a.m. and eat a meal. Regardless, I enjoy hummus and cucumbers too. Do you see the theme? Lots of vegetables and eggs, too. Must perfect the technique on that one. I love eggs in the morning with tortillas and salsa.
Currently have bud lite too. I know...you are shocked. I am shocked and it's not mine. I loathe bud lite. In all honesty, I drink budweiser with my dad since he has it stocked at his house. I don't mind it and it's fine. Bud Lite is a different story and obviously, this is stocked for a guest that prefers this beverage. Otherwise, no bud lite. Just porter and wine....I am hoping to unload the unwanted beer soon too. I think it implies that I like it...which I don't. Cannot help it. I am a snob. Yep, can say it. I am a food snob.
A few weeks ago, Shari visited and said--my sisters think you turned me into a foodie or snob. Either way, I am happy to have that title. Why put crap into your body that isn't enjoyable or good for you. I cannot even remember the last time I have had fast food. Well, in the Bahamas, I ate fried chicked on the boat, after snorkeling, and it was excellent. No lie. I truly enjoyed the chicken.
I see a breakdown in the near future to appease a certain someone to illustrate that I am not completely high maintenance. They offer salad, right? Or, I have always loved the frosty factor at Wendy's. Ice cream is in my blood.
So, yes, I have staples in my kitchen....onions, garlic, salt, olive oil, wine, coffee/creamer, tortillas and a mix of vegetables. I can absolutely sustain on this.
